The link to it is in my signature.

Who is experienced in blogging? What kind of things should a blog have? Mine is very much a default one and just has the posts and comments section, a link to my profile, and a picture of my novel cover.

Someone needs to explain how RSS, del.ici.ous, etc. works. Is all of it necessary? What bits and pieces make a difference to a blog?

I'm by no means an expert, but it looks like you have a good start. If you are self pubbed like I am a blog is a very good way of getting the word out to potential reader. Keep at it!

Thank you. I haven't updated recently since I'm busy with school and trying to find work but I plan to review a biography of the Perons I read recently over the weekend.
